Weekly Recipe: Almond Butter Cups
Who doesn’t love a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup? However, in just a single serving of these sweet little cups, you consume 210 calories, 13g fat, 150mg of sodium, 24g carbohydrates, 21g of sugar, and a whole lot of artificial ingredients. None of that is brain OR figure-friendly, which is why this week we’re making a healthy version of the classic favorite! Instead of using peanut butter, which often gets loaded with sugar, salt, and saturated fats, this recipe calls for almond butter. Almonds are high in vitamin E, potassium, magnesium, iron, calcium and phosphorus, and are also a great source of fiber and protein. Try adding these healthy, yet delicious little treats to the dessert menu for your Christmas party. You won’t even feel like your missing out on the sugary cakes, pies, and cookies, because you’ll have a new holiday favorite!
